More about Christiane
My roots are in La Grande Pièce vineyard which means the big parcel and I suppose, by Katie's standards, at one hectare it is a pretty big vineyard. I'm here with 4000 other Grenache Gris below the Château d'Aguilar on the valley bottom just outside Tuchan.
We were planted back in the seventies when everyone was drinking the sweet fortified wines of the area. I'm a little bit different as I'm Gris as opposed to Noir or Blanc which makes me rather special and sought-after.
As I'm in the valley bottom where the soils are a little more fertile I was used to producing huge amounts of grapes for my previous owner. Since Katie has been looking after me she just wants the best grapes and isn't worried about quantity.
She loves our wine too and doesn't mix it with other grapes like some do. We have our own 100% Grenache Gris in her Vineyard Selection. She definitely knows how to make a vine very happy!
A votre santé
If you adopt me I will send you a plethora of gifts and advantages including a personalised adoption certificate, a photo of me that you can put on your fridge, a Domaine Jones unique keyring and an Old Vine Adopters t-shirt. I can’t wait to send you photos of my vineyard throughout the year so you can see where I live and perhaps one day you will come and visit me here as I’m not so mobile anymore.
If you would like to try the wine from my vineyard you can order a case now and I’ll give you the special vine parents 10% discount which is also valid on all future purchases on the site or here in the shop in Tuchan.
The adoption runs for 12 months from the date of your order and will be automatically renewed if you purchase a minimum of 12 bottles within the year.
I have my branches crossed that this is going to be my lucky day!
